Batch of stills from Mel Gibson's Get The Gringo cross the border

Apr. 20, 2012by: Paul Shirey

A nice helping of images from Mel Gibson's next outing, GET THE GRINGO, have crossed the internet border.  Nothing too fancy or life-altering, but still cool to see some imagery from the film, which I'm actually quite stoked for. GRINGO is directed by Adrian Grunberg who previously worked with Mel as first assistant director on APOCALYPTO and EDGE OF DARKNESS. 

I'm a fan of Mel's acting and directing and I'm happy to see him back.  It's been far too long since he's done a film like GET THE GRINGO, which feels like a South of the border PAYBACK to me.  Which is badass.  The criticism for Mel over his personal life is forever cemented at this juncture; too many people can't let it go, including Joe Esztherhas, who recently posted a clip of Mel yelling at him on the phone over the script for the Judah Maccabee script, which I hate myself for even listening to.

Who hasn't lost their shit before?  It's beyond ridiculous and kind of low for Esztherhas.  "Hey, Gibson got f*cked for screaming at his girlfriend, I'll just get him again!"  I personally don't give a rat's ass what Gibson does in his personal time.  My only investment in him is for entertainment like GET THE GRINGO

Let me get off this soapbox and show you some images, eh?

GET THE GRINGO premieres on VOD May 1, 2012.

Extra Tidbit: Get The Gringo will be the second film I've seen on VOD when it premieres, the first being the abysmal Red State. Let's hope for a better viewing experience...

Love Mel, I hear the movie is great and I can't wait to see it. Too bad it won't be on the big screen...

Poor Mel.

He's just obsessed with being perceived as a tough guy. I stood beside him on Braveheart (I was English guard no. 234) and he's tiny.

I'm also still a Gibson fan. But that's getting harder and harder to say out loud. Especially around women. Throw us a bone, Mel.

Extra Tidbit...

Thank you. I have no idea how Red State got so much praise. The only good thing in the entire movie was Michael Park's performance. That was it.

I don't think Red State got much praise, Kevin Smith just has a small group of incredibly dedicated/ vocal supporters on the internet. Clearly, it's not enough to sustain a film career as Red State got next to no theatrical release and Smith has nothing else coming up.

edge of darkness was pretty damn cool and i'll probably check this one out, too. although, i haven't seen the beaver, yet.

Gibson has some personal problems, to put it rather mildly, but this movie looks great and I'll still check it out.

The recording of Gibson was done in person, not over the phone, by Ezterhas's son. Ezterhas was so disgusted by and frightened of Gibson that he continually exposed his family to him (including going on vacation with him) for a year in order to sell his script.

Tidbit- couldn't agree more. Red State is awful. Kevin Smith's film career appears pretty much over. He has settled

Nicely put. I feel the same about listening to the Eszterhas recording. Let's face it, he didn't publish it until after his script was rejected by Warners, so to take the moral high ground now is somewhat pathetic.

I'm excited for this movie!

I am hoping this movie will bring back Mel. I am not a big fan of Mel as a person, I met him once and he thought hew as kind of a douche (this was way back before he made the news).

I like movie star Mel, I don't care if he's a douche or not in his real life.

As far as your Extra Tidbit goes, I am sorry you didn't like Red State. I didn't have very high expectations for it when I saw it...but when I did see it, I liked it. I actually think it may be Kevin Smith's best directing job

Paul I don't know what you're talking about, I loved Red state. I am a huge Kevin Smith fan if for no other reason than him being a big part of my teenage years but, even if i wasn't a fan, Red state was still a good movie and I really enjoyed it. What exactly was it that you didn't like about it?

Mel's best comeback vehicle.

Saw the film this past Wednesday and let me just say, this is the Mel Gibson comeback vehicle we've all been waiting for. It has everything we love to see him do: wit, edge, violence. It's a shame it won't be seen in theaters in the U.S.

In a world without gold diggers and egomaniac screenwriters, GET THE GRINGO would've been Gibson's TAKEN.
